It's clear to me that the designer's business plans in addition to the the company's structure and poductivity are the primary factors, when deciding the top 10.
The awards will benefit a few small businesses who show that they can use the money to take the next step to grow further
It doesn't honor talent ... it honors business savy.
Which is what these people don't need. Yes, the recognition seems right on point, but they all have the funds to further their business. I wouldn't be up in arms about this if it weren't for the money factor. That's what irks me. They just don't need it. I just feel awful for all the promising new talent that could've benefitted from it. Sigh, oh well.
